Only the Gospel transforms lives and relationships
The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation: justification and sanctification (1)
The Gospel tells us that personal change is centered in the heart (2)
The Gospel gives us confidence to minister to one another (3)

Elders and fathers are leaders of change
Elders are shepherd-leaders in the church (4)
Fathers are shepherds-leaders in the home (5)
Elders and Fathers oversee the application of the gospel in the lives of those under their care (6)

Relationships are the program
The Church is to minister like the household that it IS (7)
Our ministry of the gospel to one another is non-optional (8)
